KIA EV6 e-GT power
The top of the range model’s 0-60mph time of 3.5 seconds is truly astounding. The beauty of electric vehicles is the instant access to torque. This gets you off the line quicker, allowing for the game-changing 3.5-second acceleration. There aren’t many other models that can beat this time!
At the core of the new KIA EV6’s design is the manufacturer’s brand new “Opposite United” design philosophy. It’s the first model that uses this cutting-edge design language, based on five new key design pillars:
- Bold for Nature
- Joy for Reason
- Power to Progress
- Technology for Life
- Tension for Serenity

KIA EV6 exterior
The KIA EV6 combines the athleticism of a sportback with the compact practicality of a hatch and the pure power of a rally car. What you get is a new car that breaks free from the boundaries of today’s car types. Everything from the aggressive front-end to the rear LED light bar oozes groundbreaking appeal.
KIA EV6 size
Its 2.9-metre wheelbase (combined with the smart E-GMP electric base) gives you the cabin space of a medium to large SUV, with the compact dimensions of a crossover.
KIA EV6 sustainable materials
Not only is it a beauty to behold, but it’s made using sustainable materials. This includes upholstery made from 111 recycled plastic bottles or vegan leather.
KIA EV6 boot space
The boot space comes in at a strong 520-litres with more than enough space for daily items or multiple suitcases. This expands to a cavernous 1,300-litres with the rear seats down, offering you boundless storage space.
It’s not only the electric motor that’s cutting-edge. The KIA EV6’s in-car tech brings comfort, convenience and pleasure to every journey.
A pair of 12-inch screens give you full visibility over all systems - comprised of a digital instrument cluster and touchscreen infotainment system. There’s even an AR head-up display system that shows vital information to the driver on the windscreen, including sat-nav directions and current speed.
High-end Meridian Premium Sound outputs detailed highs and loud lows throughout the cabin, creating a memorable audio experience.
Other advanced systems help to make your life easier, including Smart Parking Assist. Use this feature for fully autonomous bay parking. You activate it, get out of the car and let the EV6 park for you! No more bundling in and out of one side due to tight parking.
Highway Driving Assist 2 works as part-autonomous adaptive cruise control, keeping you a set distance from the car ahead with an automatic lane-changing feature. The cutting-edge tech doesn’t end when you’re parked up either: Safe Exit Assist alerts passengers exiting the car of oncoming vehicles.
There’s a lot of technology to be excited about with the KIA EV6.
